You can listen and/or download the talk show "On The Commons" taped on Saturday, October 11, 2008. Guest is Senator Mike Schneider.
This FBI investigation should be a final wake-up call for all state legislators to make necessary changes to protect the owners living in these associations.
communities have been transformed into developments where fear, terror and abuse are the norm.
For years frustrated homeowners have been called malcontents and been told their only remedies are to hire an attorney, toss the bums out or move. Well, the FBI has decided to look into some of the allegations of fraud and wrong doing in Nevada. Is the current scope of their investigation limited to construction defect litigation fraud? How serious are they about investigating things like election rigging, improper foreclosures, embezzlement, and all the other abuses associations are capable of? The list of complaints in condo and homeowner associations is endless. Will this investigation find many of the problems homeowners have been complaining about? Will there be serious reforms or will we still hear the same old song and dance about HOAs being a matter for civil litigation? Will property owners FINALLY assert their rights to more choices in housing, better protections under the law and more real remedies than simple placebos?
Listen to what Senator Mike Schneider has to say about the FBI investigation, about the involvement of members of the Community Associations Institute (CAI). and what is behind the whole scam. This show is really worth listening to!
